Use intensive pronouns (e.g., myself, ourselves).

Recognize and correct inappropriate shifts in pronoun number and person.*

Recognize and correct vague pronouns (i.e., ones with unclear or ambiguous antecedents).*

Recognize variations from standard English in their own and others' writing and speaking, and identify and use strategies to improve expression in conventional language.*
